Fairy Fest 2019

Sunday, June 2nd from Noon to 2:30 p.m.

The Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park
1490 Red Drive, Traverse City, Michigan

We are excited to be having our 4th annual Fairy Fest and it will be better than ever! Last year over 40 amazing fairy houses were added to the Fairy Trails. We’ll be posting more details soon about the event.

The theme is for this year’s Fairy Fest is “Believe.”

When you believe in something bigger than yourself, you can make a bigger impact than you ever thought possible. Belief is what allows you to tap into the curiosity that reveals creativity. It gives you the courage to take risks. It brings you closer to your dreams. We believe in the power of small acts to build a movement, which is why we created the Fairy Trails in the first place. And we believe in the potential of everyone—especially kids—to make a difference in their own unique way, and thereby inspire others to do the same.


Please note, parking will not be available right within the Garden. Please plan to walk just a few minutes and take in the lovely boardwalk and gardens from the lots to the event! I’ve included a map below with areas to park! There will be handicap parking available near the pavilion.


Check out our Facebook event page to let us know if you’re coming. Share the event with others to help spread the word!
